The kids at P33 Chelsea Prep 4th grade class took an incredible field trip to Philadelphia! We all had to meet up super early at Penn Station at 6am then head down to the city of brotherly love for an exciting time learning about the history of the city.  After a walking tour the day ended with a trip to Constitution Hall and of course a visit to the Liberty Bell! The end of the day concluded with a visit to the first post office with a reenactment from a man and his printing press. At the end of that presentation the kids could buy a copy of the Declaration of Independence that was printed on the printing press. There were so many other field trips this year for the fourth grade but this one was the best one of all for all the kids and the parents who were able to go as chaperones.

Here are some photos of the trip:
